      Make Sun Prints (Cyanotypes) in Joshua Tree

      Get ready for the magic of photography printmaking using the process of cyanotype printing. First introduced in 1842 the blueprint process has been modernized where we combine the handmade process of printmaking with the digtal process of picture taking. I'll invite you to my house where coffee and breakfast will be waiting and I'll go over the process of making a SunPrint ( aka cyanotypes). We will decide if we are going to make a negative of one or your images or use found objects ( dried plants, crystals, feathers, don't worry about bringing anything I have a bunch of fun objects) We will have a quick lesson and then coat the watercolor paper with a light sensitive solution, let it dry, prep our objects or negative and go out into the sun to expose the paper, come back inside and rinse and dry the print. Each person will have the opportunity to make 6 prints 9 x12 inches each. You will create one of a kind artwork and learn a new skill. No previous experience necessary. This is a great experience if you love taking pictures with your phone or if your a seasoned photographer ready to get your hands wet again.
